SP-400 Skylab, Our First Space Station

Seldom in aerospace history has a major decision been as promptly and concisely recorded as with the sketch shown here. At a meeting at the Marshall Space Flight Center on August 19, 1966, George E. Mueller, NASA Associate Administrator for Manned Space Flight, used felt pen and poster paper to pin down the final conceptual layout for the budding space station's major elements. Gen. Davy Jones, first program director, added his initials and those of Dr. Mueller in the lower right corner.
